#MIAvsIND UPDATE: James Johnson has been suspended by the NBA for his role in last night's altercation with the Raptors. He will not play in tonight's game vs the Pacers.— Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) January 10, 2018
Someone might want to tell Serge Ibaka that James Johnson is a 2nd degree black belt, is 7-0 in MMA fights and 20-0 as a kickboxer. I'd pick a different guy to fight with. #NBA pic.twitter.com/ou3YVaf3vo— Jeremiah Jensen (@JJSportsBeat) January 10, 2018
Tuesday’s game marks Ibaka’s fifth career ejection, Johnson has three of them.
Besides that altercation, the league fined Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan and Heat guard Goran Dragic $25,000 and $10,000, respectively, for their dust-up after the buzzer, when DeRozan “attempted to forcefully shove Dragic with an open hand,” per the NBA’s news release.
